Two closely watched home price barometers will be released: the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, which will show whether Charlotte will log a third straight month with declining home prices or bounce back into positive territory; and the second quarter home price index from the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, or OFHEO. In the first quarter, Charlotte still showed a gain.
